Ipad Air 2 motherboard battery pins

Hi all

Need advice as to whether it is possible to have the battery pin connector part replaced on the motherboard as I stupidly broke one of the pins off that help power the ipad on when separating the board from the battery (see pictures)

The broken pin is BATT_SWI_CONN and it is used to communicate the battery charge state to the CPU. The actual connector is soldered on to the logic board so the only way to fix it is to replace the connector or solder a bridge from the battery directly to the end point on the logic board. Neither of these options is a DIY repair unless you are skilled in micro-soldering.

As you can see in the picture there is a small piece of the connector/prong showing, so could I not just add a bit of solder to it so at least it will connect to the battery connector pads

You could try...Keep in mind that you are working on the logic board so any problems you create could damage or kill the board.
